With all the snow we have been receiving its looking a lot like a winter wonderland!!

The temperature as of 06:00 was -9 at 2260 meters, winds were 15-25 KPH from the SE. At 1650 meters we received 20 cm of new snow and the temperature there was -7.5. In the valley it is -2.

For the forecast we can expect snow for this morning easing to light snow and possible sunny breaks by this afternoon.  Tuesday is still looking dry with the possibility of snow in the evening.  Wednesday's numbers have changed a bit, but we could certainly still get 25 cm by Thursday morning.
Friday is looking dry. The crystal ball is out of order today, may have something to do with the Blackcomb Patrol Christmas diner last night at Araxi's.
